Workers’ Compensation Is A No-Fault System
We know that some workers’ compensation claims can be very complicated, and sometimes employers try to blame employees for an accident or even fire an employee for bringing a workers’ compensation claim. IMPORTANT: The workers’ compensation system is a no-fault system. That means you don’t have to prove your employer was at fault for the accident, and your employer cannot fire you or retaliate against you for bringing a workers’ compensation claim. Whatever the situation may be, we always fight to get our clients the maximum available benefits.
We have also helped clients obtain workers’ compensation benefits for all types of injuries, including neck and back injuries, shoulder injuries, knee injuries, head injuries, cumulative trauma injuries and joint injuries.
